Is Your Toyota a “Lemon”?
A “lemon” is a car, van, truck, SUV or other vehicle that keeps breaking down. You take it into the garage for repairs over and over, yet the result always seems to be the same – sub-standard performance. Whether it’s jerky acceleration, a moonroof that doesn’t work or a wide array of other mechanical or electrical problems, these vehicles never function correctly, or as they should.
To determine whether you have a Toyota Lemon Law claim, check to see whether your vehicle is still under the original Toyota Motor Company warranty. If it is, you probably have a claim. If you own a used car or truck, then you will need one of three specific warranties to have a Toyota Lemon Law claim. These warranties are discussed in greater detail in a separate section below. Either way, you need to make a “reasonable number of attempts” to have a Toyota dealership or certified mechanic try to repair the defect before pursuing a legal claim under Toyota Lemon Law.

What Remedies Can a Toyota Lemon Law Attorney Pursue?
You might be wondering, “Will Toyota buy back my car?” You’re in luck – California has one of the most extensive Toyota Lemon Laws in the nation to protect consumers. If it turns out that you have a lemon, your options are 1) to have Toyota Motor Company repurchase or replace your vehicle or 2) negotiate a cash settlement with the manufacturer. When you hire Neale & Fhima, our Toyota Lemon Law lawyers will help you take a look at your options so you can make an informed decision.

The other great thing is that our attorneys work on contingency, which means that you don’t need any money up front to hire a lemon law lawyer. We don’t get paid until you get paid. Our fees are paid by Toyota as part of a settlement agreement or jury award. If for some reason your claim is not successful, then you don’t owe us anything. Don’t let a lack of funds prevent you from pursuing a Toyota Lemon Law claim.
You might be wondering what defects are covered under the Toyota Lemon Law. California law stipulates that “nonconformities” must be present. These are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty. Nonconformities compromise the use, value or safety of the Toyota. Our skilled and experienced Toyota Lemon Law attorneys can explain the ins and outs of nonconformities in greater detail and help determine whether you have a claim.
Under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, if you purchase a defective vehicle, you are legally entitled to a refund, or the Toyota can be replaced at the manufacturer’s cost. The lemon law attorneys at Neale & Fhima fight the big auto manufacturers to enforce the lemon law rights of people living in California.

What Are the Steps To Filing a Toyota Lemon Law Claim?
The process starts by filing a claim against Toyota Motor Company. One of our attorneys at Neale & Fhima can do this on your behalf. You will have to show that you’ve made several attempts to have the vehicle repaired, so save all of your receipts, work orders and used parts from your trips to the mechanic. We will need these documents when constructing a strong lemon law claim.
Some used cars are also covered under Toyota Lemon Law, depending on whether your car has a warranty. If you have one of three specific warranties, then you may be protected. Here are the three types of warranties that qualify:
- Transferred New Car Warranty
- Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty
- Lemon Law Buyback Warranty
A Neale & Fhima used car lemon law attorney would be glad to help you sort your way through this somewhat complicated maze of used-car warranties to determine whether you have a claim.
